There's lots of bubbly carbonation in a head that is continually being built up but never holding itself completely. It forms a ring with some thin foam in the middle and drops spotting.
The aroma isn't bad. I'd like more hops, but the mango does well. There's a bit of saccharine sweetness that stops just short of being too much. Some grassy bitterness is light, but comes through. Malts take a back seat, which improves what it would be otherwise due to lower hops presence.
The combination of mango and hops turns toward sourness, which in turn is strange when combines with sugared fruits. Meh. That it needs a stronger hops presence is obvious.
The body teeters on the line between light and medium. There's a crispness that would be more refreshing if it wasn't sticky. Carbonation saves the day, but just.
